The Methow Valley Community Center Association (MVCCA) board of directors is asking MVCCA members, and the public at large, for feedback on how to proceed with needed heating and cooling system updates at the center’s building in Twisp.
The center is facing “the inevitable replacement of the oil-burning furnace, ‘Bertha,’ to make all areas of the building comfortable in both winter and summer,” the board said in a letter to members. Preliminary estimates put the cost of a new system at more than $200,000.
The board has posted a short survey at http://www.surveymonkey.com/r/MVCCA-members-2020, with a Nov. 10 deadline for input. The Iron Horse in Winthrop is offering “door prizes” for respondents.
The Senior Center and Community Center facilities are leased from the Methow Valley School District for $1 a year. Because of the lease terms, the board’s letter said, “In recent years … we have found that charitable funds and foundations are reluctant to offer large grants to MVCCA.”
